The Dutchman was previously available at 13/2 to be in charge at the beginning of the 2022-23 Premier League campaign.

However, he's now the outright market leader at 6/4 having received significant support in the betting market.

Known for his attacking philosophy, the 51-year-old has clinched two Eredivisie titles with Ajax and made it to the Champions League semi-finals in 2018-19.

SunSport understand that United chief Richard Arnold is backing Rangnick’s pursuit of Erik ten Hag as the next permanent boss.

However, many players want former Spurs chief Pochettino to take charge.

Ten Hag's Ajax are now five points clear of PSV and boast an outrageous record having scored 69 goals and conceded just FIVE all season.

Pochettino is second-favourite at 5/2 with Betfair.

The Argentine was previously favourite but recently signed a one-year contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain until June 2023.

However, things are looking increasingly perilous for Pochettino in Paris.

And publication Le Parisien now claim Poch's future hinges on whether or not they are able to progress past 13-time winners Real Madrid in the last-16 of the Champions League.

Rangnick is offered at 5/1 to extend his stay.

He's won six of his opening 10 games in all competitions but is now winless in his last three in all competitions — including an embarrassing FA Cup defeat to Championship Middlesbrough.

Brendan Rodgers — who is favourite to be the next Premier League manager sacked — is priced at 13/2 with Diego Simeone further back at 12s and Didier Deschamps at 14s.

Antonio Conte, who was tipped to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November, has once again emerged as a contender at 16/1.

The fiery Italian has cut an increasingly frustrated figure in North London and declared it "impossible" for a team hoping to fight for the Champions League places to lose games in the manner Spurs have recently.

He said: "I am telling you from my arrival that we have to struggle every game.

"There are a lot of jobs to do but it is not simple because the environment is used to play for Champions League, Europa League, but everyone maybe has to realise something has changed and you have to try to work to build again and we have to know this."
